OSHA and COVID-19
April 7, 2020
Maintaining a safe work environment has become a greater challenge in light of the pandemic threat. To reduce the potential for OSHA violations, it is critical to implement a formal safety program specific to COVID-19 (policies, training, PPE, etc.). Please refer to the Federal and state OSHAs overrun with COVID-19 complaints article from Business Insurance for more on COVID-19 OSHA enforcement.
If your organization does not have an Infectious Disease Pandemic Preparedness & Response Plan, it is not too late to get one in place. Contact Matt Forest, Director of Risk Control Services at Lyons Companies for a sample template.
